Default build question

Building a computer for my friend. Normally i would go ahead and build one without questions asked because i normally go off of what the computer needs for basic needs or gaming but he needs it to be for trading stocks so he will need it for multiple programs to run and multiple screens as well. I am guessing a bit of ram, atleast 8 or so as well as quad core processor. though i am stumped on what i would need for a graphs card. What do you guys think?

Default Re: build question

When I build a machine, the bare minimum I use is a dual core CPU with 6GB of RAM. For trading stocks, that would work well. A quad core with 8GB of ram would be better.

You don't need the high end graphics card that a gaming rig would require, however something that supports multiple displays and at least a gig of video memory would more than suffice.
